Allow custom resource classes in flavor extra specs

Registered by Jim Rollenhagen on 2017-03-16

Allows a flavor to request custom resource classes via extra specs, and also allows overriding of "standard" resource classes (VCPU, MEMORY_MB, DISK_GB) in extra specs such that they can be displayed in API fields (and CLI/dashboard/etc) without being scheduled to.

    Add spec for custom resource classes in flavors

Jay is getting stretched thin on other work, so we probably need one or more people to step up and own this one which sounds like at least three major changes: placement API updates for filtering resource providers by custom resource class, a change in the FilterScheduler to pass those through via flavor extra specs, and a data migration for Ironic instances. cdent and edleafe expressed interest in owning this during the June 12 nova-scheduler meeting. dtantsur from Ironic said he could help with black box integration testing. -- mriedem 20170712

I don't think any changes need to be made to the placement API. It currently accepts a generic 'resources' query parameter, and can handle any number of {resource_class: amount} key-value pairs. -- edleafe 2017.06.13
